Jet RIBs and aluminium RIBs

I am presently looking at large'ish 10 Meter Jet Boats .

I don't want to buy a boat manufacturers first attempt at a Jet installation , so I am looking at Delta , Tiger ( tomorrow ) and RTK Marine . Anyone have any other suggestions on experienced JET RIB builders.

Also any one have any thoughts on Aluminium Boats ?

Best wishes ,

For aluminium jet-drive RIBs the company that comes to mind immediately is Ocean Dynamics -- that's all they make!

Other manufacturers that I know have experience of jet installations are Ribtec and Crompton.

Let us know what you go for -- and invite me out to play!

I suggest giving Trevor at Pepe Boatyard a call (02392 461968). He specialises in Aluminium, and makes hulls to order.
